Call Ford and ask. They'll want your VIN to see if yours has been done or not. I'd imagine it's been done. 9+ years later is one lazy ass owner.

Think there was some place online you could check too. Can't recall what Ford site it was though, Motorcraft Service maybe ...

There's a wheel bearing recall? I wonder if it applied to the 2003 models too? If so, I need to limp to my nearest dealer (not going to be fun...left rear is making some WONDERFUL noises right now from the bearing failing suddenly yesterday).

Mine went at about 90 K or so, but I figure that was okay, just put two new ones in and called it a day. At 156 K now and still fine.

Rear bearings should be a fairly simple replacement. First off, you need the hub. The biggest bummer would be removing the drum from the hub, but depending on how badly worn the drums are- is it worth it? If it were my vehicle, I'd purchase the hub, drum, shoes, spring kit, and a new nut. Then I could install the hub/drum assembly as it is most easily removed. It might seem like more money in parts, but if you do everything then you won't have to worry about it for a long time in the future. I might not bother with more than cleaning the shoes/spring kit if the shoes aren't worn at least halfway.
